secret to aging beautifully is the ability to say, "I
love what I do." This is the hidden opportunity of aging,
the freedom to choose the perfect job. Sixty eight percent
of retirees find a non-working retirement unsatisfactory and
non-working seniors are more likely to have significant health
and daily living problems. Make a difference with the time
you have left. Volunteer for the perfect job.
Rehabitat Fund is a non-profit volunteer organization founded by
Cynthia Leibrock to assist disabled and older people to stay
in their homes and to maintain their independence. Often this
independence hinges on a few small "rehabs"; installation
of grab bars, construction of a ramp, removal of thresholds,
or the installation of hand rails. Minor changes often prevent
major injuries, loss of freedom and even institutionalization.
